In colorful costume,storytellers, Wendy Garrison and Rebecca Jernigan retold the tale of legendary bluesman Robert Johnson. With music, drama and sign language, they recounted his fateful encounter with the Prince of Darkness at the crossroads in the Delta.

They discussed the historical person Robert Johnson, and they shared the role of the blues as a musical genre that grew out of the challenges of life in the Mississippi delta with the Fourth Grade students at Como Elementary.

The performance was supported in part by a grant from the Mississippi Humanities Council.
